    I was 20 when I started mine (after a year of university that i hated). I'm 21 now and moving in to my Level three come september, but my class has all ages in it (from 16 to around 50)
    I think the couple of years i've taken to go to college have been pretty beneficial - especially because i studied business - and helped me understand the concepts more. No need to go to uni though - you can go straight on to a professional qualification after completing it - Like an ACCA or a CIMA - and then you're accredited.

    I'm working as a bookeeper for a local charity at the moment; and my employer is paying for my AAT - whether or not i'll be funded for an ACCA will be discussed nearer the time as i've got two years left of my AAT yet.
    As far as an ACCA goes, after completing my AAT it means I'll be exempt from some units (whether or not that affects how much it costs I don't know though.)
